Shanghai | Living the Life | Tailors

One of the benefits of being an expat in Shanghai is the affordability of world-class tailoring, and our relocation guide introduces you to the very best.

Shanghai | Tailors | Expat Essentials

Getting some custom clothes made is a highly recommended Shanghai experience, and it will cost you far less than at home. While the South Bund Fabric Market (see Markets) is very popular with expats due to price and range of options, those listed below are top professionals delivering a far superior product.

Dave’s Custom Tailoring

At age 15 Dave started his apprenticeship, developing his skill in the methods of Savile Row, and is now producing world-class bespoke suits. Ranked among the ten best bespoke tailors in the world by Forbes magazine, Dave’s suits are impeccable. A suit that goes for USD400-700 at Dave’s will cost you 10 times that on Savile Row in London or Fifth Avenue in New York.

Eleganza Uomo

Owner and master tailor Raymond Kiang has been making suits since he was 18, when he apprenticed at the prestigious George Chen & Co in the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong. Like Dave’s, his suits are jaw dropping for those familiar with fine bespoke tailoring, when you consider the value. For the price of a mid-level off-the-rack suit in Europe or the US, you receive a masterpiece. Businessmen are grateful.
